CARRIERS ARE
HELD UP BY
STORM
Saturday evening. 2d minutes after
the Evening Standard was out the
blizsard started in all Its fur So
Btrong was thr wind and so cold the
air that several of thr Evening Stan
dard carriers were forced to abandon
tho delivery ot the paper and did not
mal e the deliveih until Sunday morning.
I p on ihe hen h and out at Rive
Points it was impossible for the 1 ar
rler boys to proceed on bicycle or
tlOrSS w ith tbe paper- Si veral or the
boys werp so 1 hilled that their par
ents had to work- for several hours
to bring them hack to a normal con
dition The Standard subscribers who did
I not receive their paper until Sundaj
morning have acted very nice about
the matter, and the Standard wishes
to how us apnreciation of the way
the subscribers acted in the matter
111 not forcing the boys to deliver the
paper during the storm. All Sunday
morning, however, the carriers were
kept busy delivering papers. If there
are any of our subscribers who have
not recehed the paper for Saturda
evening the;, ran telephone to the of
flce and we will send out the Satur
day evening paper with tomorrow's
issue
Out of the 21 carriers 17 delivered
their papers regardless of the storm
3everal of the youngsters had 10 stop
in at the homes of subscribers and
warm themselves before continuing
their journey Several of them did not
get through until 0 o'clock
Should another storm like this take
place In the evening and make it al
most impossible for the hoys to de
liver the papers, the subscribers are
hereby notified that the paper will be
delivered the following morning, but
a this is the first time in 20 years
that such a Btorn) h.'ts sprung up so
suddenly just after the evening paper
was Issued. It probably will not occur
a'-aiu during the next 2 years. If.
however, it does come, rather than
take chances on freeing a boy to
death, we Wll lake chances on deli -cring
the paper the following morn
ing. thus far there Ihm been no com
plaints trom our subscribers, and the
Standard appreciates this very much.

PLAN OF ROAD
IS OPPOSED
Transfer of Union Paci
fic Stock Would Not
End the Merger.
Washington. Jan. 6. The supreme
Court today held that the plan advanc
ed b linion Pacific attorn'- ol d
posing ol the entire suo( kholdings ol
'the Union Pacific Railroad company
in the Southern Pacific com pan J bj
transfer to the sio kholders of the
' Union Pacific company would aol so
effectually end the Pnion Pacific mer
ger as to comply with its dissolution
decree.
I'nlon Pacific attorneys claimed for
jthe Union Pacific stockholders the ex
clusive privilege of taking over the
$125,650,000 worth of Southern Pa i
'fi stock which the Union Paciflt
owns in violation of the Sherman anti-trust
law
Wickersham Opposes Plan,
attorney General Wickersham op
posed any plan that gave the Union
Pacific stockholders an exeiusie priv
ilege of buying the Southern Pacific
I stock in question He was willing to
approve, however, a plau for the Un
ion Pacific stor kholders to share in
a distribution with the Southern Pa
cific stockholders other than the Un
ion Pac iflc Railroad company
Court s Decision.
Announcing the decision of the
court todav. Justice Daj said:
"The proposal to dlstrihute the
stock among the shareholders of the
Union Pacific- company or to sell the
stock to such shareholders, if gran'
ed, will in effect transfer the stock
from the Oregon Short Line company,
which now holds It for the Union Pa
1 Iflc company, to the stockholders
who own and control the latter com
pany. "The court Is of the opinion that
this distribution of sales cannot be
ordered The ultimate determination
of the atfairs of a corporation rests
with its stockholders and arises from
their power to choose the governing
: board of directors After such distri
bution, as is now proposed, the stock
holders of the Union Pacific com pur
may dominate and control not onlv
the Union Pacific company, but the
Southern Pacific company as well.
"In rejecting the proposal for the
transfer of the Southern Pacific com
pany's stock held for the Union Paci
fic company (either by distribution
among or sale to the stockholders of
the Union Pacific company) we do
not mean to preclude the district
court from considering and acting up
on plans which may be submitted to
It under the former opinion and de
cree of the court We are of the
; opinion, however, and now hold that
the proposed plan of disposition of
the entire stockholding of the Union
'Pacific company In the Southern Pa-
I aciIM coilipiiliv 111 i lit ouuuiri 11 r .1-
iclflc c ompany by transfer to the stock
holders of the Union Pacific company
will not so effectually end the combi
nation as to comply with the decree
heretofore ordered to be entered by
t his court
Railroad Attorneys' Contention.
Railroad attorneys had held that
Union Pacific shareholders should be
recognized as qualified buyers cf
Southern Pacific stock "In order that
they may have an opportunitv to pro
tect themselves against a sacrifice of
1 his valuable asset covered bv invest
ment "
They claimed that the so-called con
trollinc Interest in the Union Pacific
held only 18 per cut of the stock of
the Union Pacific and there! would
be able to buy only 1. per cent of the
total capitalisation of the Southern
Pacific company
attorney General Wickersham held
that m the interest of competition the
two sets of Stockholders should share
in buying the disputed stock.

Bulgaria and Rumania at Outs.
The conversations between Dr. s iLIH
Daneff, the chief of the Bulgarian IibH
peace delegation, and M Jnoescu, the jH
Rumanian minister of the interior, isl
have assumed a serious charactl
The Rumanian Statesman Inplsrs that
Rumania must receive immediate sat-
act ion by the grant of compens.i
tton which was promised In return for ll
her neutrality during the war H
Dr S Daneff. in reply, repeated the H
vague promises alreadv made by him
to Hie Rumanian government during
his sojourn at Bucharest before he iH
came to London, but M Jonescu In-
sisted on an explicit answer and Dr pi
Daneff thereupon telegraphed to the H
Bulgarian government at Sofia for
definite instructions on the subject. ssl
Turkish Delegates Indignant. H
The Turkish delegates are ind".;- s
nant over the attitude of the Euro-
pean powers toward the Ottoman em- Pl
pire They remark that when th ml
Turks are defeated nothing is done WSI
to modify their enemies' pretentions, iilssl
but when the Turks are victorious. 1
they are always prevented by the
powers from reaping the fruits of H
their efforts. H
They cite the war of 1837 in which
Oreece was utterly defeated by Tur- H
kev at Domkes and the Greek army sH
was compelled to withdraw and to V ssl
conclude an armistice. Five days I'isl
later, however, a collective note was jfll
European powers to the "B
porte in w hich the conditions of peace
were practically drafted and the an- J
ncxation of Thessaly was prevented, ssl
although it had been occupied by the H
Turkish troops. The payment by 1
Greece of a war indemnity was also H
stopricd by the powers Thus Tur- H
key gained nothing by her victory in JH
that war, but now- that Turkey has IH
heen defeated by tbe combined armies jH
of Bulgaria. Greece, Montenegro and jH
Servla, the allies are encouraged by 'H
the powers to demand even that
which thev have never conquered.
Report of Turkish Loan.
Another report was current otday
that Turkey had arranged for a loan.
London financiers, however, discredit- H
ed the rumor and said that the situ
atlop Is the same as in December. IH
when Turkey made tentative propos
als for the borrowing of a larce
amount of money, hut was told that H
she must first conclude peace It is H
thought that todays report was
spread for political purposes.
